Charlie Lee: 這些ASIC來挖Litecoin 意味著成功的轉折點,現在起Litecoin 將被自己所專屬的Hardware 所保護






As new miners jump onto to the network, however, litecoin payoffs become rarer for folks like Jeremy Martinez. Litcoin mining is now about nine times as difficult as it was back in November. But there’s a bright side. All of this processing power also makes the currency’s network harder to take over. Both litecoin and bitcoin could fall victim to something called the 51 percent attack, which would let an attacker with control of more than half of the network’s processing power do things like send the same digital currency to two different addresses. That’s why litecoin’s creator, Charlie Lee, likes to see the new chips, known as ASICs. “Having ASICs come out to mine litecoin means that it’s really gotten to a point where it’s succeeded,” he says. “Now litecoin is being protected by its own hardware.”

註: 這位大哥你去年好像不是這樣說的吧...

EBay CEO 對於 bitcoin 是認真的.



http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000281677

look, john donahoe, ceo of ebay -- you wrote a column about this. i know, he thinks quite heavily that ebay may very soon start accepting bitcoins. this is what he had to say. i think there's no doubt digital currency is going to play an important role going forward, and at paypal, we're going to have to integrate digital currencies into our wallet. so cap it.

how quickly do you think we'll see bitcoin in paypal?

i don't know, i can't give a specific time. but i think you'll see bitcoin used in different use cases, whether it's a peer-to-peer use case, a cross-border transaction, someone's sending currency to someone else, and over time, you'll start to see it with some merchants accepting bitcoin. and i don't know how big it will get, how quickly, but the underlying theme is a digital coin something we should be aware of.

do you own any bitcoin, personally?

yes, i do. what do you think it should be worth? for me, i'm not buying it as an investment. i'm buying it to understand how it can be used. i think there are two sides of it, the investment side and the digital currency side. i'm more interested in the digital currency side.

i don't know if it's a stockholm syndrome or what, but everybody that i talk to out here, and you sort of get into it, really does talk about bitcoin as the next big thing. and they believe it. and they mean it. it is not just some kind of fly-by-night thing they are playing with. they are serious and very big companies out here, very, very serious about it. the other topic we talked to john donahoe about, we talked about his competitor, amazon, who's in that big fight with book publisher, hatchette. they're in a battle. you can't go mr. gladwell's book now on amazon because of that battle and i asked him what he thought of all of that. should we care about from a policy perspective, these kind of concentration issues? that's a great question. because what ebay represents is opportunity for small sellers. that's what ebay is made up of. we aren't a retailer. we don't compete with our sellers. we don't use scale against them. we give them the benefits of scale. ebay, from its very beginning, took entrepreneurs, took small businesses, and now also some large businesses, can give them an equal playing field to reach 140 million buyers around the world.

Bobby Lee 當選比特幣基金會董事



2014年5月9日,比特幣中國首席執行官和創始人李啟元( Bobby lee)當選比特幣基金會董事,下面是Bobby的當選感言:

尊敬的比特幣社區成員,

能夠當選為比特幣基金會的行業董事,我深感榮幸,同時,我也要祝賀布羅克皮爾斯,並感謝溫尼Lingham和其他非常優秀候選人,他們為整個比特幣社區作出了卓越的貢獻。

我感谢你们,不仅因为你们支持和选举了我,更要感谢你们对比特币的发展所给予的投入和承诺。对于将事业和未来奉献给比特币的我来说,这样的一个重要机会更使我感到荣幸。能够在比特币的发展历程中为之发出声音,并代表比特币,这是非常重大的责任,也是我将忠实履行的职责。因此我会努力做好自己的工作,并积极倾听你们的需求。

为了确保透明度、市场健康和比特币生态系统的创新,我将竭尽全力提升与政府及监管机构的沟通并加强理解。我期望能努力创造出一个可以支持,而不是阻止比特币成长的法律体制。这样我们可以在我们最擅长的领域做出最好的结果,那就是专注在技术革新和比特币获得最大程度的接纳,创造属于未来的技术。

通过为比特币基金会服务,我的目标是为推动比特币获得更多的认可和使用起到关键的作用,但是我知道这仅仅是一波浪潮的开始。比特币的未来取决于对于公众的教育普及以及公众的接受、技术的革新、法律体系的支持和金融体系的整合。我在此呼吁所有比特币社区成员积极参与和比特币基金会的对话,这样我们可以共同实现加密货币的广阔未来。

真誠感謝大家的支持!
